and shortly after used his concession speech to call for national unity. >> i so i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. >> just after 1:00 a.m. president obama took the stage in chicago and in an eeb lex cycle that has parsed every line, and smile, it was clear he saved his most powerful oratory for the very end. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states andstates we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together with your help and god's we will continue our journey forward. >> reverend al, the president rode into office on a wave of hope and change, but i wonder after last night, is the change really, perhaps, for the second term? could the president have a mandate to really change the way >> i think a lot of it will be the t
of the arguments in the report out from the white house today is that people are going to use this problem and look at these tax uncertainties, as eamon said, and hold back on spending. do you think that's realistic for the average american worker? >> it's interesting. there's been an interesting bifurcation. you know, higher income people have been a bit testy so they don't want to really put their feet in that water. but people with less to lose, have more to spend, so they end up saying, look, about $68, a little bit less than what this average was a year ago. so i think they're right to be concerned about the perception, because the perception means a lot in life in general, but in the economy, i'm not an economist, but i look at this, you know, i'm uncertain, i'm nervous. go see dr. freud. the anxiety is incredible. but the reality is, is that the perception drives the market in a way that it doesn't do so empirically with other things so i think, yes, there's a big concern there and i think they're right to be concerned about the act. >> one reason you've seen this split personality is becaus
is easy so there's going to be some prolonged negotiations. and all of us will have to get out of our comfort zones to make that happen. i'm willing to do that. i'm hoping enough members of congress in both parties are willing to do that as well. we can solve these problems. but where the clock is really ticking right now, is on middle-class taxes. at the end of the year, middle class taxes that are currently in place are set to expire. middle class tax cuts that are currently in place are set to expire. there are two things that can happen. if congress does nothing every family in america will see their income taxes automatically go up on january 1st. every family, everybody here, you will see your taxes go up on january 1st. i mean, i'm assuming that doesn't sound too good to you. that's sort of like the lump of coal you get for christmas. that's a scrooge christmas. a typical middle-class family of four would see their income taxes go up by $2200. for a typical family. more for some folks. that's money a lot of families just can't afford to lose. that's less money to buy gas, less

wins. >> that's a nicer job for him than i envisioned which is saying you guys are using too much copy ing paper, let's do this digitally. >> romney's amoral, here's your goal, lower drug prices across the board, do it. no, here are your charts, here's your quant, go for it. >> amoral or apolitical, you know, i wonder, it is telling, karen, that mitt romney's gotten a warmer embrace from president obama than his own party. >> how about that? >> maybe will be the thing that pushes him over. i thought, for a while during this election cycle, there was no love loss between the two and it wasn't about party but personal distaste for one another, especially towards the end. it's surprising me romney took him up on the offer and the present would appropriate him with a role. >> who knows he's going to present him with anything. it's a good thing to say election's over, we're going to come together. the problem is i don't think the meeting with mitt romney gets the president much of anything other than to get him in a room and be like, dude, free stuff, really? you know what i mean? beyond th
candidates are within the margin of error with the edge going to the president. joining us now from chicago, obama for america deputy campaign manager, stephanie cutter. it's a pleasure to have you on the program. >> thanks for having me. >> so, we played a little sound that i think would make the case the romney campaign is using the kitchen sink strategy, a lot of last-minute plays there, but worth noting the big dog bill clinton is holding four rallies today in pennsylvania, which was once a state we thought, perhaps, firmly in the ledger for the president. does that speak to concern on your part it may not be all locked up? >> we're not going to leave anything -- we're not taking anything for granted. we want to make sure everything is locked up going to election day. so we're really pleased to have president clinton there. i think these are going to be great events. there was huge enthusiasm on the ground. we've been on the ground there for years. we've got offices all over that state. we're going to win it. but we're not taking anything for granted. >> stephanie, there's been a lot of
of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, did an outstanding job in afghanistan, was going to go to nato, it's just tragic. you're right, this has the elements in so ways of a hollywood movie or trashy novel. >> a brief primer on the characters until so-called trashy novel. allen who is married became ensnared in the investigation because of his e-mail correspondent spns with kelley who in may started receiving a series of what she considered to be harassing e-mails from petraeus biographer and fellow west point grad paula broadwell. the ensuing invest
changed his position on all of these issues numerous times. he has felt no need to give us any specifics on any of his policy prescriptions. and his assumption is they won't notice. the "washington post" in their editorial board of which you are a member writes through all the flip-flops, there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican presidential nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. romney seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. eric, jonathan, jonathan, why don't we go to you first. >> the problem we have had as an editorial board with mitt romney, it's encapsulated in that editorial. read it online and it will be in the paper tomorrow. >> www washingtonpost.com. >> where the problem with mitt romney is he says something on monday. it's something different by monday afternoon which is completely different or gone back to where he was on monday by tuesday. he won't tell us anything about his tax plans. we know he is going to
is senior national correspondent for bloomberg business week and joins us now from washington, d.c. josh, it is great to see you. >> good to be with you. >> let's talk about this what i like to term dance of the seven veils that the speaker of the house is performing for us right now or a fan dance, depending on your favorite form of entertainment. at a certain point -- this is evidence of how he has to play cate a house caucus and i think betrays of broader understanding that the republican party needs to come to the table and deal. you seem to think at the end of the day, the real deal is going to be one that the president determines. >> yeah. i think boehner has an extraordinarily difficult thing to do and that is to lead his party and especially the house republican caucus, out of this land of make believe that they've been living in for the last couple years, where obama's a terrible president, romney's going to win in a landslide and they're going to impose the republican agenda. what i write in the cover story if you look at how things have changed on the outside looks like the st
and gone home. at 12:50 in the morning, romney called to congratulate the president and shortly after used his concession speech to call for national unity. >> i so wished, i so wished that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. >> just after 1:00 a.m., president obama took the stage in chicago and in an eeb lex cycle that has parsed every line, and smile, it was clear he saved his most powerful oratory for the very end. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states, we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together, with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward. >> reverend al, the president rode into office on a wave of hope and change, but i wonder after last night, is the change really, perhaps, for the second te
the help they need. >> every single person on this block lost everything. you need to come here and help us. we need assistance. please. >> i think that we're not getting the attention because we are, you know, we are a working-class neighborhood and fend for yourself thing. >> yesterday the staten island borough president called the response a disgrace. homeland security secretary janet napolitano will visit the borrow and the red cross is sending ten trucks for release. might have eclipsed what could have been a hurdle for president obama. the october unemployment report. as it turns out, last month was a strong one for job creation. the labor department said 171,000 jobs were added last month, the unemployment rate ticked to 7.9%, but remained under 8% which is key for the president. in a move that surprised exactly no one, both campaigns tried to spin the news this morning. governor romney said this in wisconsin. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2%. today we learned it's 7.9%, that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> speaking in ohio the presid
. the investigation also determined she was having an affair with petraeus. the fbi then used that information from the investigation to uncover more details and obtain a warrant to surveil broadwell's e-mail, according to the "wall street journal." so, in september, officials say the fbi interviewed broadwell, who then admitted the affair. investigators also convinced her to voluntarily surrender her computer, which was found to contain unauthorized classified information. according to officials, on the week of october 28th, the fbi then interviewed general petraeus, who reportedly admitted the affair at the time, but denied providing any classified information to broadwell. then two members of congress say they received a tip about the same investigation in october which was raised with the fbi. officials say investigators interviewed broadwell again on november 2nd. that's key, because after that second interview, the bureau concluded there were no criminal security breaches and thus no charges to file. it was not until november 6th, election day, however, that the fbi informed james clapper, th
to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from the election. >> joining us discuss all of this and more, republican strategic mark mckinnon co-founder of no labels which aims to get political leaders to stop fighting and start fixing. a lot needs to be fixed. i guess i wonder, as someone that has watched this election cycle, what you make of the ashes that have resulted at the end of it, which is to say, how does the republican party go on and what do they need to do from here? you see two various factions of the party, mitt romney on one side, someone like bobby jindal seemingly on the other? >> i come down squarely with governor jindal. the last thing the party needs to do is to be looking backwards, casting blame. there needs to be self-reflection and taking responsibility for the outcome, not blaming others. we need to expand the base. we need to be more diverse, tolerant. you know, romney's remarks show not only tone deafness but a flaw in his character, i think. and he didn't deserve to win if that's his view of the election and we had an outcome justified. the republicans got wha
campaign. >> this is a pretty emotional time for us because this is the final event of my husband's final campaign. >> in iowa last night, the place where it all began, the first couple held an extended embrace at the end of a day that saw president obama on the stump with jay-z and bruce springsteen, he seemed at peace, closing one chapter of his political life. >> it all comes down to you. it's out of my hands now. it's in yours. >> now, of course it is just down to the ballots. chris, let's talk about the mood. i mean we are going to prognosticate, we have been prognosticating about how tight this thing is. >> never made a prediction the whole year and i have no idea. >> some people have. we don't know what's going to happen. judging by the behavior of both candidates on the stump yesterday, you know how do you think each campaign really truly is feeling. i will read an excerpt from john heilemann following romney and has been on the trail with him, writes when romney took to the podium he didn't seem jazzed off pumped or juiced instead he came across as s
come home. that's my plan to keep us strong. that's my commitment to you. and that's what's at stake in this election. now, change in the future where we reduce our deficit that's balanced and responsible. i signed a trillion dollars worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work. if we're serious about the deficit, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda
give us? bag of weed. that was nice. oh. food stamp cozy. contraception variety pack. very thoughtful on there. codan. pinata filled with green cards. >> so josh, what stewart is doing there is a comedic takedown, perhaps, of the notion of the makers versus the takers. but in some ways that has been a very dominant narrative inside conservative circles and letting that go is going to take a lot of work. >> i think so. romney's biggest gift has been the gift he keeps giving to us and journalists. in a backhanded sort of way gave a gift to his party because it allowed bobby jindal and susana martinez -- >> marco rubio chris christie. >> basically everybody, who wants to move forward to a new iteration of the republican party to have that break, move forward, to show what they're against and as you said the challenge now is to show what they're for. maybe it's a little more tax revenue if it's packaged the right way. maybe it's immigration reform. that's going to be tougher than smacking mitt romney down for dumb comments. >> i don't know, ben. as much as there are 2016 benchers, to say
